The world-renowned American blues musician Seasick Steve will be headlining Friday night as he hits the international festival circuit with a Top 10 album, You Can’t Teach A New Dog Old Tricks, in tow.


Platinum selling artist Newton Faulkner is also playing the Friday night, along with Teesside mavericks Young Rebel Set, rock’n’roll lovies Kitty Daisy & Lewis, Bruce Springsteen’s current man of the moment Pete Molinari and the unstoppable force that is Cattle & Cane all playing on the opening night.


Confirmed to headline Saturday night are British Rock royalty and the double platinum selling Maximo Park. Lead singer Paul Smith is originally from the area so makes a welcome return to home soil.


Re-formed 90s heroes Cast and Teesside darlings The Chapman Family will also be setting the stage alight on the Saturday along with London based four-piece Django Django and Stockton girl Saint Saviour, returning for her debut Teesside festival gig.


Add to this an abundance of homegrown talent including Jimmy & The Sounds, Sister Rose, Temujin, Be Quiet. Shout Loud! Collectors Club and you've got a very juicy line up, and there’s still more to come!


There is also the added bonus of a fully facilitated campsite, only a short walk from the main site, perfect for those wanting the full festival experience.


Sunday remains a free day perfect for family fun, featuring The Wildcats of Kilkenny, Suspiciously Elvis, Henry Priestman and many more…


And did we mention the comedy?! Richard Morton, Dan Nightingale, Ian Stone, Barry Dodds and Gary Delaney, make up the vanguard of a stellar comedy line up, in the now legendary festival comedy tent.
